I started this hat using Nancy Marchant’s Aliens pattern from her book, “Knitting Fresh Brioche: Creating Two-Color Twists and Turns.” Towards the crown, I end with a feather motif because to me the overall pattern looks like feathers instead of little aliens. ;)

Adult One size slouchy fit

Beginner - Intermediate brioche experience with increases and decreases

Any DK weight yarn will work in two coordinating colors
Between 220 - 250 yards used of both colors
